A good year for citrus fruit on Maui after all the rain

By
Real Estate Agent with Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers HRE# 58089 - RS

This past season has been very wet on Maui and it's no secret.  The good side of that means we had a bumper crop of citrus fruits like oranges and lemons!

Our little orange orchard in Haiku really produced a tremendous amount of navel oranges this winter and our visitors have been loving it... making fresh juice every morning.

The lemons have also been very abundant, and of course you know what you're supposed to do when life gives you lemons.... make lemonade!

So raise your lemonade or orange juice glass and toast to this plentiful harvest of citrus fruits on Maui!

Thinking of farming on Maui?  There are many great properties that are already producing income.  Let me be your guide to these listings since I'm out there seeing them every day.

Thanks for reading my Maui blog...

Hi Georgie, those must be absolutely delicious!  Kat loves fresh oranges, and I'm a big fan if fresh-squeezed, tart (no sugar) lemonade.  John and Kat

Georgie so funny I used to do the back yard watering and I did not like how Diane did the front yard... grass was just not right... we had a perfect Citrus season... when we switched the grass started looking good and we had a bad Citrus crop... now I said to Diane we will have green grass and perfect Citrus crop... so I was right after reading your post:))Endre

Nothing like a fresh squeezed glass of Maui lemon juice on a hot day at the ocean. Makena preferably!

I LOVE fresh fruit and I really enjoyed when I got to visit Maui, it has been so long ago though.

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 I guess I had forgotten that citrus was grown in Hawaii, but why not since pineapples are grown there. They look tasty!

I think we got your weather here too - the Pineapple Express came through and we have had the wettest month in many years.
